Amethyst chip and rondelle necklace

This necklace is made with two kinds of real amethysts. There are amethyst chips, which are dark purple, and are strung so there are five or six of them together, which creates a beautiful effect in the design. There are also amethyst rondelles, which are oval stone beads that are beautiful, with the transparancy and the lovely color of deep lavender amethyst. Between these beads, I have added a variety of colors of purples and lavenders in cracked glass squared beads and also small lavender faceted Czech crystals. The necklace is three strands of beautiful beads, which are crocheted and lightly braided and arrangeable.
